Unattractive Pool

The pool at Old Creek Lodge is considered small by most guests’ standards. In addition, the pool area is not very appealing for just lounging.

Three, Two, One, Gone!

While the breakfast provided a good selection, guests weren’t impressed with its upkeep. According to reviews, the food is often not restocked until someone notifies the staff – and items run out quickly.

No Issues Reported

So far, no recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this hotel.
